Does the economy have you spending more time entertaining in your own home? There are a few outdoor staples that every homeowner should consider when completing Atlanta home remodeling.
Year-round living spaces are a great option for us Southern state residents. Make sure you maximize your outdoor living spaces by designing them for everyday use and blending them seamlessly with your indoor spaces. One way to do this is by installing sliding glass door with collapsing panels, so that you can open up entire walls and create stunning views. Screening in and covering your outdoor spaces will also help you to enjoy these areas in any type of weather.
Outdoor fireplaces are one of the most common outdoor additions, even in the South where the weather stays warmer longer. Homeowners can choose just how creative they want to get with this “hot” feature by either creating whole living spaces with the firepit as a focus point or just creating a cozy seating area for a few family and friends. On the other hand, you have water; many area residents are choosing to design elaborate swimming pools complete with infinity or zero-entry edges and swim-up bars.
When it comes to furnishing the outdoor space of your Atlanta custom home, you need to make sure your furniture is built to last. Materials should stand up to sunlight, heat and humidity without sacrificing design. Many appliance manufacturers are also fully embracing the trend of outdoor kitchens by designing fun appliances specifically for these spaces.
Just because the weather is getting cooler, doesn’t mean all of your time has to be spent indoors. By following these few simple suggestions, our design/build team can produce al fresco entertaining areas that you’ll be able to use for every season!
